Engineering | Event Planning Guide

Plan Your Event

Make sure you take advantage of the available resources provided for use during your planning such as:

Things you want to consider when planning any event are:

  • Type of event – Meeting, reception, visit to the school, student recruitment, etc.
  • Purpose of the event – Welcoming new students, improving relations, annual report reporting, folster alumni relations, a generous donation appreciation, fundraising, etc.
  • Number of attendees expected – This is important both for the budget and for the room size. Always make sure you have room to grow, never assume that the first anticipated number will not change.
  • Budget – Know before you start planning how much you can spend. Before you contact anyone, do a budget estimate including everything you assume you will need. Always make sure you have some money for miscellaneous items or additional attendees.
